New approaches to the management of acute puerperal uterine inversion.

Abstract

Six cases of acute puerperal inversion of the uterus are reported. In four of these, tocolytic agents were used to facilitate replacement of the inverted uterus; and in five, Prostin-15M was given after replacement. The use of tocolytics may obviate the need for general anesthesia for uterine replacement in some patients with uterine inversion. Prostin-15M serves to minimize bleeding and to maintain uterine position after replacement.
